‘Storm of Art’ blows into Noble

NORMAN — Art is in the wind at “Storm of Art,” Noble High School’s annual art show and sale. Slated from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, the event will be at Noble Public School’s Administration Building, 111 S. 4th St.

“You’ll never see this scale of art show at this level anywhere in Oklahoma,” said Kika Dressler, art teacher. “They (the students) walk the part. They dress the part. They’re being graded when they meet the public. They’re practicing the elements and principles of design they’ve been learning all year.”

Two pieces have already sold before the show even opens. Gary Hicks, dining room manager at Noble’s Tiffany’s Restaurant, purchased a piece online called “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”

“It’s a wonderful evening out to indulge in the arts. It’s quality art for affordable prices,” Dressler said. “Nothing is over $100.”

She said each of the 15 student artists has 10 to 12 pieces of art in the show. Dressler said the pieces are of different mediums including watercolors, oils, acrylics, mono prints, linoleum prints and mixed media.

This year’s show title, “Storm of Art,” was hatched when Dressler and her students were trying to think of something catchy. Since there were lots of storms around that time, they came up with the name. Each student has a piece of art in the show that represents a storm.

“The piece might reflect a storm like a tornado or perhaps a storm in their (students’) minds,” Dressler said.

Dressler said she teaches her students “the sale is in the title. You have to be very thoughtful when you’re picking the name of the title for the piece.”

Members of the public can join the artists for an evening of cultural arts while enjoying the art, music and hors d’oeuvres at the event. Dressler said her students work all year long for the annual art show, which is the department’s largest fundraiser.

Artists retain 70 percent of the sales price to use for college or living expenses and 30 percent goes back to the Noble High School Art Department to help defray costs of art supplies.

For more information, call the high school at 872-3441.
